with a special-interest in america's cultural war. she writes on family, feminism, homosexuality, affirmative action and campus political correctness. she helped publish a book entitled radical and chief which was exposing obama's lost years that nobody knows anything about. his new book is spreading the wealth. welcome mr. kurtz. [applause] thanks so much. it's great to be here. this is the second time i've had the privilege of addressing this group and i want to thank phyllis schlafly again for having me here. i always enjoy the defense. my topic today is obama's policy towards the suburbs. it's a remarkable issue and it doesn't get covered by the media. it's something people should know about. i'm going to get to that in the second but i cannot resist because i have an audience of college kids taking two or three minutes at the beginning to let you know of another focus of my work. let me see a show of p.m. both hands. how many of you have heard the campus movement? you are probably going to hear about it next year if you haven't heard about it already. this is a movement where students ar

and a sound currency, you have a huge middle class. america was always known to have the biggest middle class ever, and the wealthiest middle class ever. but not anymore. look at statistics on unemployment. 100 million people receiving .ome type of food assistance inflation is still with us. i would say that the results have been very poor. we are in a situation where we are not producing either. we create a situation where we don't produce our -- our greatest exporter are our dollars. you will have to do something. you will have to decide -- if you get a little bit confused on what we should do, when, and how , you can start by saying, you know what would be a good start? why don't we start right now, never send anybody to washington unless you really believe they will obey the constitution? [applause] that's pretty radical. if they are needing change, that's the kind of change we want. we have to change attitudes, too. we have to change attitudes about this authority government has assumed. the executive branch is probably most guilty. they assume so much power they don't really have. but w

. it turns out the british are not coming, but france may be back in. america is ready to go it alone either way. we're talking of course about the intended -- apparently intended attack on syria. white house officials saying off the record it could come at any time, most likely after saturday when the final u.n. inspectors leave that country. but the president not getting the coalition he sought. overnight the british parliament turned down prime minister david cameron's request to back the u.s. in that effort. >>anna: you see the cover of the daily news, the british aren't coming, the british aren't coming, saying the president is looking more like the lone ranger than paul revere. parliament coming out a vote not to go a 0 long with the -- not to go along with the unilateral attack against bashar assad. what do you think, brian? >>brian: you've got to get a bigger coalition; they were on president bush. you need more partners. the coalition always included tony blair and the british. david cameron doesn't have the votes and saying i'm not going to go further. this is embarrassing after ne

to the ea complete. there are on the national mall our president whose story reflects the promise of america will help us honor the man who inspired millions to redeem that promise. president bush refers to the promise of america that is reflected in president obama. when we think about that, how significant does that weigh on this presidency that basically barack obama really personifies, comes to life as the dream of mlk? >> good for george w. bush. i thought it was a nice statement. i'm not going to question that. but to say this. at least back in 1939 when marion anderson had to sing here, "my country 'tis of thee" rather than the constitution hall they said the reason because she was black. at least they were honest back then. today in american politics you have donald trump who hangs around with mitt romney talking about the president being an illegal immigrant. you have people talking about nullification of the law of the land. you got people talking impeachment like coburn and ted cruz out there. they never say their problem with obama is that he is black but look at the pattern. the

to do with not only international norms, but also america's core self interests. >> again, the president has not made a decision yet on what the administration will do. the decision, though, could come within days. we are in washington. paul, let's talk about the pushback from congress. let's go straight, paul, can you hear me? >> i can. i can. the pushback that the president is getting from congress is they really want a clear explanation of how military action fits into a pole and how that policy and use of force will be legally justified. more than 100 congressional house members have sent a letter to obama demanding that he seek congressional authorization for any military action against syria. >> so, paul, does the administration have any contingency plans, should assad choose to retaliate? >> contingency plans, there are reports that he will be -- that president obama will be holding a briefing with members today with congressional house members on contingency plans, but as far as specifics, i don't think we know that just yet. >> ok, thank you, paul, we'll be checking in with you

and room and bo. >> you might, but a lot would have to go to private institutions, to go to bank of america who could jack up the price or interests a lot higher than government, that creates another problem. neil: you do see that -- you keep feeding the beast. >> you put a ceiling on what government can give you is fine, but have to go to private lenders. i would have had to go to bank of america for example or whatever it was. you know because i'm ancient, they did not exist. neil: then i am -- scotty, we have to do something we can recognize risk of those who need the aid not getting aid, but bigger risk no one gets aid because it will be priced out. >> not like the republicans are against education, but what is the real hype crease, barack obama is champions students supposedly, he will make $50 billion in profit off of the interest from the loans, is he doing this in best interest of students, if we gave government grants to make it equal to have status quo is fine, but this administration is using it to make a profit to make up for other losses. >> you are suggests that other presiden

alone america. obama, call him a liberal or what you want but he was not on the fringe. he was down the plate of the democratic party. you have guys who are both not ready and also taking really wacko bird positions to -- >> at the same time, a lot of that has to do with the fact where you live and what your views are. there are a lot of people in middle america that don't see ted cruz or rand paul or marco rubio out of the mainstream. a lot of people. as many people don't think they are, as people don't think barack obama is. i mean barack obama -- >> they're not even in the mainstream of the republican party. barack obama was in the mainstream of the democratic party. he may have been inexperienced. >> when these guys came in 2010 they are in the mainstream of the republican party. look at the fact that in 2010 it's not like there were a couple people that snuck. >> office. republicans won the largest legislative landslide on the state and national level i think probably in the 20 -- in a century. it was a remarkable victory for them. the problem that some of them don't understand
